i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. 5:01 now. developing news in the city of vallejo. who shot one man to death and wounded four others? that's what police want to know after a violent incident happened last night. kpix 5 reporter elissa harrington is in vallejo this morning with what we know so far. >> reporter: good morning. the victim has only been identified as a man in his 20s. he and another man were found suffering from gunshot wounds inside of that garage on the 800 block of humboldt street. police were first called out here last night around 8:30 after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. police arrived to find two gunshot victims on the ground inside of the garage. they were taken to the hospital where one of them died. police say that there were actually five people shot here total. three others two men and one woman drove themselves to the hospital. >> everything right now is in the preliminary stages of the investigation. unknown as to who the suspect victims are, whatever
5:01am
transpired here. and what we're doing right now is trying to piece everything together. >> reporter: police have not released a motive behind the shooting and say they don't know who lives at that home. although they have recovered multiple shell casings, it's unclear just how many shooters there were. there have been no arrests and no suspect descriptions. police are still on scene collecting evidence. and this marks the city's second homicide of 2013. in vallejo, elissa harrington, kpix 5. the east bay this morning, two suspected bank robbers are in jail. chopper 5 over the easy 8 motel in newark. that's where police found the suspects following a holdup in fremont yesterday afternoon. one of the men surrendered shortly after officers arrived. it took about 5 more hours for negotiators to talk to the other man into giving up. a man is in critical condition after being shot by richmond police on nevin avenue in an apartment at 5 p.m.
5:02am
yesterday. police were called about a man with a gun. they shot him shortly after they got there. it's not clear what happened. the former l.a. police officer who police say murdered three people may be going to mexico. a security video shows dorn -- buying scuba equipment in torrence two days before the murder of a police captain's daughter and her fiance. an affidavit for an arrest warrant gives u.s. marshals the power to extradite him. and ate found his wallet and -- an agent found his wallet and i.d. card near the san ysidro point of entry. the world isn't happy about north korea setting off a nuclear underground test. cate caugiran has global reaction. >> reporter: this moving is causing dramatic ripple effects in the international community.
5:03am
even china is voicing opposition. the u.n. security council will hold a closed-door meeting to discuss the nuclear test. this test took place last night just before 9 p.m. eastern time. the u.s. geological survey said the blast had a magnitude of 4.7. a nuclear monitoring agent says the blast monday was twice as big as the last nuclear device the country tested in 2009. this morning we're learning that north korea says these tests were only a first response to so-called u.s. threats. north korean leaders are calling it self-defense and the nation warns of second and third measures if the u.s. maintains hostilities. the test has heightened tension in the region especially in japan and south korea. u.s. ambassador to japan met with japan's prime minister to reaffirm american support. >> the united states stand fast to the allies in the region.
5:04am
>> reporter: the president issued a statement this morning calling the tests provocative and says it threatens u.s. security and international peace. in his statement he says, the danger posed by north korea's threatening activities warrants further swift and credible action by the international community. the united states will also continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies. >> reporter: experts say this timing is not coincidental. the test comes before president barack obama's state of the union address and just ahead of the birthday of former north korean leader kim jong-il. cate caugiran, kpix 5. the news out of north korea is expected to increase the significance of national security in president obama's state of the union address. but domestic issues will likely remain the focus of this evening's speech. the president is expected to call for more money for clean
5:05am
energy and manufacturing jobs. >> the core emphasis that he always placed in these big speeches remains the same and will remain the same, which is the need to make the economy work for the middle class, the engine that drives this country forward. >> the official republican response will come from u.s. senator marco rubio of florida. he is expected to emphasize the need for smaller government and less regulation. and some high-profile guests will be on hand for the state of the union address. they include tim cook, ceo of cupertino-based apple, invited by first lady michelle obama. several house democrats have invited people who have been affected by gun violence. among them, former arizona congresswoman gabrielle giffords. musician and gun advocate ted nugent will be there a guest of republican congressman steve stockman of texas. kpix 5 will air the president's state of the union address live this evening starting at 6:00 followed by a special edition of kpix 5 news at 7:30. 5:07. how about another check of
5:06am
traffic and weather? are you ready for 70 degrees? >> i'm totally ready. >> me, too. but boy, usually get into april and start talking about that. this year we're getting it going early. but yeah, folks got some patchy fog out there right now. some of that along the coastline. valley fog. other than that good so far. haze in the area, temperatures still chilly inland. 35 degrees in concord. 34 in santa rosa. 46 in san francisco. and 34 degrees in livermore. high pressure system no threat of rainfall today and for the foreseeable future. just a strong dominant ridge. the jet stream staying well to the north will keep us dry and these temperatures very mild as we head toward the afternoon. averages today in the 50s and 60s maybe a little above average in santa rosa, about 64 degrees. about 62 in consumer report. 62 in santa monica. we'll talk about that coming up. >> we have an accident through the santa cruz mountains
5:07am
fortunately just so early and traffic is so light across the stretch of northbound 17 not much of a delay. one lane is blocked northbound 17. sounds like it's approaching that idylwild road exit so again heads up heading into san jose. in the next 40 minutes they are activating the metering lights which they set up last week on northbound 280ics 6 to 10 a.m. through downtown san jose finally being activated this morning. here's a look across the golden gate bridge where not too many cars on the road so far heading into san francisco. we saw them doing lane changes a while ago. lawrence mentioned patchy fog in the north bay valleys. heads up on 101 through santa rosa. that is traffic. back to you guys. >> thank you. a maritime safety group in the bay area may put new rules in place this week limiting ships from sailing under the bay bridge in foggy conditions. this will follow an accident last month when an empty tanker
5:08am
called the overseas reymar struck the base of a tower. now a working group of the harbor safety committee recommends barring ships from sailing north under the bay bridge when the visibility is a half mile or less. the coast guard is being sued by a bar pilot whose container ship struck the bay bridge causing a major oil spill. this was back in 2007. john cota of petaluma contends the coast guard tricked him into surrendering his mariners license and he wants it back. a federal investigation determined he failed to disclose he was on numerous prescription medications which may have been a factor in that crash. the los gatos town council voted to consider looking into ways to restrict retailers who want to sell guns in the future. but gun sales will continue at the store that began all the controversy. the debate began late last year after tell barry bonds sports opened on university avenue. the only retailer in los gatos to sell guns including assault rifles. >> there are plenty of places
5:09am
to purchase a weapon. the question is, why did we need to be one of those places? >> the only thing that stops a crazy man with a gun is a good guy with a gun. good guys can't get guns if they don't have stores like templar's to go to. >> the store's owner says he has received death threats. town officials say los gatos had no local restrictions on gun sales when templar sports applied for a business license last year. the store has complied with state and federal laws and will stay open dozens of city workers in san francisco are being investigated for sharing porn and gamblin on the job. employees allegedly used city computers to email porn to each other and visit online gambling sites. investigation is expected to take about two weeks. time now 5:11. let the speculation begin. who could be the next pope? >> plus, one in four of us has a mistake on our credit report. how you can check yours now and what you should expect if you
5:10am
find a mistake. >> and getting ready for the big party in the big easy. take a look. this is live a live look on bourbon street there. people are starting to gather. will the rain dampen all the fun? >> what's cool about your school? you can submit your nomination on our website, cbssf.com cbssf.com/coolschool.
5:11am
5:12am
5:13am
parties are just getting started. "s it is fast tuesday. take a look at some live pictures right now from new orleans where the biggest mardi gras parties are just getting started. this is a live look at bourbon street. just a few stragglers in the street there. but you can see the delivery trucks. they are getting ready for a major party. i would say maybe in about an hour or two. >> someone is homesick. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> whoo! >> there you go. that looks familiar. first it's the super bowl, now party-goers from all over the world are taking over new orleans for mardi gras. about a million people are filling the streets and balconies, some showing up hours ahead of the parade to
5:14am
grab a front row seat. >> going to get first row i don't want to be in the back i don't want to be stuck. >> there you go. five miles long and 27 floats in all throwing everything from beads to coins. people in the crowd just trying to catch a part of the big easy fun. and also constant crowd control for police, but for mardi gras vets you go with the flow. that's what you do there. you have so much fun. the success of a mardi gras parade is how much trash is collected the next day. that's how they measure the success. >> i think they did well. >> think so. >> i think she is homesick. >> i am. >> she is like a pro at this whole new orleans thing. >> i went to that bar and i know that restaurant. >> know it all. >> turn right at this corner. she has that place down! outside right now we are following breaking news in oakland. we are hearing of a power outage so this is in the redwood heights area of oakland. we just got off the phone with the oakland police department. at this point they can't confirm the number of outages in the area but the reason that the car hit the power pole and
5:15am
again that's in the redwood heights area of oakland. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it looks okay approaching the pay gates. once you get past the metering lights there is some roadwork on the incline section of the span. but again it's still early. it's not causing a delay. they are about to wrap that up any minute now. in the meantime, out to oakland a live look at the nimitz 880 as you pass the oakland coliseum and the oakland airport. so far, so good. they have been doing that widening project in the area overnight. it should have wrapped up and lanes should be open heading southbound into hayward. elsewhere more live traffic cameras and new metering lights. that's the big deal in san jose this morning. we'll have a live look coming up. in the meantime, it's those downtown san jose exits coming on or off 280 from 6 to 10:00 this morning, they are activating the metering lights. they installed them last week. this morning they are turning them on. we'll see what it does to the morning drive. northbound 17 approaching idylwild through the santa cruz mountains again we still had
5:16am
that one lane blocked heading into los gatos. golden gate bridge traffic looks okay. fog 101 through santa rosa visibility an issue. milpitas, everything is at the limit. as a check of your time-saver traffic. for more on your tuesday fog, here's lawrence. >> a bit of a sea breeze kicking in and some fog gathering at the coastline some of that pushing inside the bay. we also have some of the valley fog showing up, as well. out the door this morning, you may run in a couple of patches of fog early on. temperatures in the 30s and 40s this morning. by the afternoon should see sunshine in most spots temperatures in the mid-60s fairly mild in the valleys, 60s inside the bay and some 50s couple of patches of fog at the immediate coastline. but not bad. high pressure remains in place now in fact today kind of just sits overhead sending the jet stream to the north. tomorrow it will begin to strengthen when we expect the temperatures to start to crank up. so staying dry today mild days
5:17am
ahead. and some of these temperatures getting near 70 degrees as we round out the week. temperatures around the state you're looking at 60s in the central valley, 43 degrees in the high country, not a bad day to travel, 59 degrees in the monterey bay. around the bay temperatures as high as 62 in san jose, 57 degrees with fog into pacifica. 60s into the east bay and for the bay maybe mid-60s santa rosa 61 san francisco, and 63 degrees in oakland. next couple of days, a lot of sunshine coming our way, warming things up, maybe some 70s into thursday and friday. then cooling down a bit toward the weekend. by the way, don't forget, this thursday something is going on. i think it's valentine's day. >> nice for a lovely little stroll on valentine's day. >> or whatever you would like to do. lawrence, thank you. it is 5:19. new this morning, the vatican is acknowledging that pope benedict had secret surgery three months ago to replace a battery in a pacemaker. the pope plans to resign at the end of february and the vatican says that decision is not due
5:18am
to any specific illness. but an italian newspaper quotes advisors saying that after the recent surgery the pope refrequented whether he could continue. the cardinals have in several centuries picked a european priest. but now they are from all around the world including cardinals from canada, began in a and other worldwide countries. chuck hagel's nomination is being voted on today. the former senator from nebraska has been criticized by members of his own republican part for comments on israel and iran. if the committee approved hagel, his nomination would get a full senate vote or would need it. so how long has it been since you connected your credit report a while for me. >> i did mine a couple of weeks
5:19am
ago and found a mistake. something you might want to do to make sure your report is right. the federal trade commission says about 25% of consumers have an error in one of their credit reports. major credit agencies are not conducting investigations that are required. >> federal law says that if you believe that there is a mistake, they have an obligation to do a reasonable investigation. >> only about 20% of americans check their credit reports for errors. one site where you can do it for free annualcreditreport.com. i found a mistake but it takes a long time to fix coming up, the warriors have something new up their sleeves. >> plus an acrobatic dunk. a midair move that earned our play of the day coming up.

dark this morning in oakland. there are about 1,000 customers without electricity. more on that and the morning commute coming up. good morning, it's tuesday, february 12. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. one dead four others wounded in a shooting in vallejo last night and this morning, police are trying to piece together evidence. kpix 5 reporter elissa harrington is in vallejo this morning with an update. >> reporter: investigators have been out here more than more than nine hours focusing their efforts inside that garage. that's where two people have been shot. one has since died. police say five people, four men and a woman, who all appear to be in their 20s, were here on the 800 block of humboldt last night when they were shot. this happened around 8:30. police don't know how many shooters there were but they have found multiple shell casings scattered throughout the street near that home.
5:29am
neighbors called 911 last night after hearing those gunshots. and when officers got here they found two injured men inside of the garage. they were taken to the hospital where one died. the other three victims drove themselves to sutter solano hospital. >> everything right now is in the petaluma stages of the investigation. unknown as to who the suspect victims are, whatever transpired here. and what we are doing right now is trying to piece everything together. >> reporter: an officer i spoke with this morning said they are still piecing together the events that led to that shooting. they have made no arrests and have released no suspect description. in vallejo, elissa harrington, kpix 5. a five-hour standoff between police an bank robbers in newark ended with the suspect surrendering. this video from chopper 5 shows the easy 8 motel where the suspects in a fremont robbery barricaded themselves. one of the men gave himself up about 3:30 yesterday afternoon.
5:30am
it took about five more hours for negotiators to talk the other man into giving up. the search for that former l.a. cop accused of killing three people is shifting south of the border. video shows christopher dorner buying scuba equipment, taken in torrence two days before the murder of a police captain's daughter and her fiance. an affidavit upon an arrest warrant gives u.s. marshals to extradite him from mexico. it cites probable cause that dorner is headed there to avoid prosecution. he allegedly attempted to steal a boat in san diego saying he was going to mexico. dorner's wallet and i.d. card were found near an entry point into mexico. north korea says it's testing a smaller nuclear bomb, it's causing big ripples around the world. the u.n. security council holds an emergency meeting today and kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran is in our newsroom now with the latest on this developing
5:31am
story. >> reporter: good morning. we're learning this morning north korean leaders say these tests were only a fires response to u.s. threats. north korean leaders are calling it a self defensive measure and the nation warns of second and third measures that the u.s. maintains -- if the u.s. maintains hostilities. the test happened last night around 9 p.m. eastern time. the u.s. geological survey says the blast had a magnitude of 4.9. this test follows a successful launch of long-range ballistic missiles in december that many believe is capable of reaching the united states. experts say this timing is not an afterthought. the test comes before president barack obama's state of the union address and just ahead of the birthday of a former north korean leader kim jong-il. international analyst jim walsh calls this move tactical. >> the party was dead, dormant. no one cared about it. now they are trying to pump it up. but this is a military-first society. how do you because all that?
5:32am
i think to me that's the question going forward. >> reporter: the test heightened tensions in the area. neighboring neighbors like south korea and japan are on high alert. president obama issued a statement calling the latest nuclear test a threat to u.s. security and international piece. in his statement he says, "the danger posed by north korea's threatening activities warrants further swift and credible action by the international community. the united states will continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies." as frank mentioned earlier, the u.n. security council will hold a closed-door emergency meeting this morning to discuss the nuclear test. reporting live in the newsroom, cate caugiran, kpix 5. the latest developments in north korea will likely make national security a bigger part of president obama's state of the union address. but domestic issues will probably be the main focus of tonight's speech. the president is expected to call for more money for infrastructure, clean energy, and manufacturing jobs.
5:33am
>> the president's principal preoccupation since he ran for this often beginning in 2007 has been, what we need to do to make our economy work for the middle class. >> the official republican response will come from u.s. senator marco rubio of florida. he is expected to emphasize the need for smaller government and less regulation. some high-profile guests will be on hand for the state of the union address. they include tim cook, ceo of cupertino-based apple, invited by first lady michelle obama. several house democrats have invited people who have been affected by gun violence. among them, former arizona congresswoman gabrielle giffords. musician and gun advocate ted nugent will be there a guest of a republican congressman from texas. kpix 5 will air the president's state of the union address live this evening starting at 6:00 followed by a special edition of kpix 5 news at 7:30. it is 5:35. lawrence karnow is a little upset because the weather is
5:34am
too good right now. >> it's very nice. we are actually running below average now as far as rainfall is concerned just slightly but it's amazing because we started with so much rain earlier on. >> earlier we were at like 150%. >> then it all turned off. it's going to stay that way. enjoy the sunshine while we have it. it is going to stick around. a little patchy fog out there right now so something we haven't seen for a couple of days but even some of that sneaking inside the bay and some of the valleys, too. out the door still chilly in spots inland. 35 degrees in concord. 34 in livermore. 34 in santa rosa. 40 in san jose. high pressure really dominating our weather sending the jet stream well to the north so the storm track will remain that way it looks like for the remainder of the week as high pressure sits overhead and temperatures will be very mild to round out the week. about 62 in san jose, 63 sunshine into santa clara. 60s in toward the east bay. and as you make your way inside the bay a little cooler but not, 61 in san francisco, 59 in sausalito. more on your weather coming up. right now let's check on the
5:35am
roads with elizabeth. we have updated information about this power outage in the oakland hills. for a while almost 1,000 customers were without power. they have been able to restore power now to all but 33 of those customers. so that's great news. more people waking up with lights on this morning and we'll continue to watch it and let you know exactly what the cause is. we had heard initial reports from the oakland police department it was because of a car hitting a power pole. elsewhere we're watching this, city streets in san francisco. a car fire 15th street in alabama. not much of a traffic issue at this point. but we understand that one person was transported to the hospital with burn injuries. elsewhere down towards the south bay now, coming through the santa cruz mountains, northbound 17 approaching idylwild. we have an accident there in lanes for a while. as you make your way towards los gatos. that's a check of traffic. back to you guys. >> thank you. a maritime safety group may adopt new rules on thursday limiting the ships from sailing under the bay bridge in fog. this follows an accident last
5:36am
month when the empty tanker called the overseas reymar struck the base of a tower there. now a working group of the mar bore safety committee recommends barring ships from sailing north under the bay bridge when visibility is a half mile or less. a petaluma bar pilot whose container ship struck the bay bridge in 2007 is suing the coast guard to get his mariners license back. a federal investigation determined that john cota failed to disclose he was on numerous prescription medications, which may have been a factor in that crash. the accident spilled 53,000 gallons of oil into the bay killing almost 7,000 birds. and the countdown to the opening of the new bay bridge span is on. kpix 5 of course proud to be the official television station for the opening ceremonies in september. we'll keep you posted on planning for the big day, 202 days to go. and tonight be sure and tune into spanning the future, the new bay bridge, ken bastida and a team of reporters looking ahead to the labor day closure
5:37am
and the big grand opening planned. prime time half-hour special starts tonight at 10:30 right here on kpix 5. some other bay area headlines we're following this morning. there may be some travel headaches in richmond for the next couple of months. the tunnel on dornan drive is closed for emergency repairs plus work that was already planned. crews found some concrete failure inside the aging tunnel. until it's repaired, traffic will have to take other routes to point richmond and the miller knox regional shoreline. alameda county firefighters were not legally required to save a man who was trying to commit suicide by drowning. a judge dismissed a lawsuit against the city filed by the family of raymond dack. they say emergency workers were not trained in rescue and didn't have a boat for that situation. when police in fairfield raided a house they found drugs, money and guns.
5:38am
>> but never expected to find this. a 3-foot-long gator. police say the couple was running a marijuana grow operation there totaling more than 900 marijuana plants at the home on begonia boulevard. >> do you get the sense that this was for protection or this was a pet? >> it's hard to tell because of its size. it's certainly interesting to have it but i don't really know what their motive was to have it. >> besides the small gator, a number of firearms were found, $29,000 of cash and pot. the suspects face a number of drug and weapons charges. as for the gator, it's at the oakland zoo doing okay. >> that's good to hear. 5:40 right now. a real-life zombie attack that had people calling 911. >> he wants to be just like dad. the adorable distraction of the president's medal of honor ceremony coming up.
5:39am
5:40am
5:41am
but his adorable son stole the show. before president obama awarded romesha with the medal of h well, it may have been army staff sergeant clinton romesha's big award.
5:42am
he got the medal of honor. his son walked up to the podium trying to get the microphone. he ran right back up and wanted to fill his dad's shoes. he tried to sit in his chair and there goes dad. romesha received the medal of honor for his action in the 2009 firefight in afghanistan. what a cute little guy. >> i think he just wanted to give a speech. >> it remind me of rudy giuliani when he was sworn in as the new york mayor, he had a small son, he was doing faces while giving his speech. oh, my god. talk about stealing the show. the economy will be a central issue in tonight's big state of the union address. here with a preview of that, jill schlesinger, editor at large for cbsmoneywatch.com. >> what measures could the president do to boost the economy and jobs market? i'm sure a lot of measures are going to be listening to this. >> we'll get a renewed focus on
5:43am
green jobs, education, boosting the economy. these ideas should be taken with a grain of salt. remember anything that might help the economy or create jobs would require the government to spend money. but in less than three weeks, the government has to actually cut $85 billion worth of spending. that's known as the sequester. so ironically, if the president is going to discuss job creation, the pentagon is planning to cut 800,000 civilian worker hours by 20% and homeland security is about to slash a quarter of its total border agents. so really opposing ideas being introduced at the same time. >> is it possible the sequester won't happen? >> reporter: the president has been talking about the negative impact of this sequester and economists agree. they say these cuts will shave a .5% from growth thisser y that's significant. we are only growing by 2 to 2.5% but this is a hard part about debt reduction. figuring out how to dig out of
5:44am
